Mother- this word doesn’t need any meaning. It covers the whole universe of love affection and care. For a child his/her mother is always a special person who holds your hands when you are in trouble, who hugs you when you are hurt, who supports you even if she has to stand against the whole world and in whose lap you can sleep, cry or laugh and forget all your troubles.
She is the one was standing holding your hand when whole world is at the other side of the river. One day dedicated to Mother is a drop in the ocean to what she did for us. In today’s hectic schedules, life, future everything it almost become impossible to show your affection your love towards your mother. And to compensate this Mother’s Day came into picture.
Mother’s Day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
Mother’s Day 2015 : 10th May 2015
The modern American holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her beloved mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Anna’s mission was to honor her own mother by continuing work she started and to set aside a day to honor mothers, “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.
The modern Mother’s Day has been assimilated into Indian culture, and it is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May. Indians do not celebrate the occasion as a religious event and it is celebrated mostly in urban centers while a majority of the population still remains unaware of a formal Mother’s Day.
Indian Scriptures including Philosophical and Religious texts placed Mother as above God. Especially Vedic,Puranic, Smritis such as Manu Dharma Shastras guided human race to deeply respect and reward Mother. Hindu and Jain Scriptures often placed Mother above God.
For a typical Hindu or a Jain everyday is a Mother’s Day indeed.
